Mausoleum of Kaffalya Shashi

Mausoleum of Kaffal Shashi — the mausoleum inTashkent, built in the honor of imam, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn of Ali ibn of Ismail al - Kaffal ASh - Shashi. Tomb in its initial form was not preserved. In its current form the mausoleum was built in 1542. By the khan architect of that time the Gulyam Khusein. This was asymmetric dome like portal mausoleum — khanaka. Khanaka was intended in order to give to pilligrims shelter in the habitable cells — khudzhrakh. The complexes of mausoleums also frequently included mosque, and accomodation for the preparation of food, called oshkhona. To the  south from the main building in the small cavity the later places of burial are located (Sagan). Near this mausoleum is located the house, where the veins Hodja Akhrar bring down, it was the follower of Kaffalya Shashi. Hodja  Akhrar was also the follower of Bakhauddin Nakshband, he asserted that people of faith must  not request alms; they must live from the labor of their hands in its own life it adhered to the words of Nakshbandi —“Dilba eru dast bakor” what indicates: “heart with the god, hand in the labor”.

Chorzu Bazaar

There's no real way to satisfyingly portray the greatest bazar of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in words. At any rate I can't discover one. It's soo enormous, soo beautiful, soo changed. The offered merchandise range from modest plastic to home-cultivated super sweet strawberries, from odd symbol floor coverings made in China, to extravagantly weaved coats, from seriously scenting garlic to brilliantly shimmering adornments. The bazaar is extended over endless corridors and boulevards with the mammoth lobby of seriously shaded flavors and dried merchandise (a Kurt, a dried cheddar claim to fame), finished with a green vault, being the inside. What Tashkent's new city needs in real open life, Chorsu adjusts for. Consistently, agriculturists from outside of Tashkent go to Chorsu to offer their products in the officially constant warmth of May. The wealth of sun in Uzbekistan (300 days of daylight a year, take that, Berlinowic) makes the produce ultra-tasty. The sweet aroma of strawberries and the tasty taste of tomatos here is so extreme, it makes you wanna faint (when pondering the German quality). The lobbies are loaded with clients and merchants, young men moving trucks, and youthful ones running in the middle of stands. The majority of the ranchers are from Uzbek inception and don't inexorably communicate in Russian, while numerous clients from the new parts of the city don't as a matter of course communicate in Uzbek, in spite of the fact that it's teached in school since first grade. It's an aggregate conflict furthermore a decent lesson about the Uzbek society. I was very amazed to realize, that in Uzbekistan your "ethnicity" or "starting point" is said in your identification, while everybody is Uzbek by nationality, their beginning is for the most part either Uzbek, Russian, Korean or Armenian. Uzbek are by a long shot the larger part in this nation, in spite of the fact that for occasion none of my understudies were Uzbek and there were no Uzbeks in the clubs and bars we went to after dusk. I listened, Uzbek are significantly more preservationist, and I likewise learnt how enormous the feelings of disdain in the middle of the few ethnicities can be. I came to Chorsu with the understudies of my photography workshop and needed to incorporate the photos of one of them, Komila Rakhimova, here. They are set apart in the subtitle. Simply behind the huge vault is the sustenance bazaar, or nourishment market. Where merchants shout their offered dishes to stand out enough to be noticed and we went to eat. Chorsu Bazaar is situated around Chorsu Metro Station and is additionally a stop of numerous transports. On the other hand simply get a taxi. It happens each day.
